Playing with Pastels
I printed out an image and played with cray pas and pastels. I like the pastels better ~ finer control. I'll color up a bw test print and see how that looks.
Pastel on an actual test print. I had to switch to a brighter red to overpower the black ink. Ditto gingerbread brown.
Now to print on Arches 88.
Pastel plays into my need for clean lines. Tapping in color while printing is just too messy for my finicky nature. ;- j
Bill measured his scanner bed ~ just about the right size (but that's ok, I already accounted for the xmas card being more narrow and long, and I already plan to lose some from the top and bottom).
Coming along. 8-]
